If you’ve followed my blogs for a while, then you probably know that in my pre-custom install life, I was a golf professional.

It’s easy to get lost and lose your perspective when wandering the halls of The Venetian high-end audio suites during International CES.

Walking through the halls of the Venetian hotel’s high-end audio suites this week in at International CES in Las Vegas, there is no shortage of six-figure audio systems to listen to.
